Centereach family seeks help in paying medical bills for son diagnosed with rare form of childhood epilepsy
A Centereach family needs all the help they can get after their 21-month-old son was diagnosed with a rare form of childhood epilepsy called Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS).
Carmine LaRocco suffers from more than 50 seizures a day, but the number was even higher until recently.
There is no cure for the condition and less than 50,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with LGS.
"Eventually he's just not gonna be able to walk and talk on his own and it's a real dangerous situation," said Carmine's father, Paulie LaRocco.
Dr. Sanjeev Kothare says there is hope for Carmine to live a normal life with the right medications and therapies.
